SAN JOSE, Calif., September 28, 2010 – The CEOs of Cypress Semiconductor Corp., SunPower Corp. and Second Harvest Food Bank along with San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed will dedicate a new 322-KW SunPower solar power system at the Second Harvest Food Bank’s headquarters at 750 Curtner Ave. in San Jose. The event will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 1. The solar system is largely funded by $1.1 million in combined donations from the two San Jose companies. The cost savings from the solar-electric system will save the food bank enough money to purchase 315 more pounds of food per day—the equivalent of 630 meals per day, or six million meals over the next 25 years.
